Customer Question

I just bought a Sharp Aquos 50 inch TV today, and am trying to connect to my laptop for movies. However, the desktop appears larger than the screen, and the picture quality is poor. Is there a setting on the television or computer to improve screen resolution on the TV display? Thanks.

Hello, I'm Shahid and will be happy to assist you.

It needs to adjust/ increase picture resolution in laptop for 2nd/ external monitor. Right click on desktop to get popup window and select Screen Resolution (for Windows 7) and select screen 2 in that window to adjust/ increase video resolution. TV has no option to adjust/ improve picture quality and all it depends on connected video source (in this case, laptop) to send video signal to TV. If you're using Windows 8 or 10 then please find similar option to adjust screen resolution output for 2nd monitor.

I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
